  • Synopsis

    Summer. Heatwave. City’s like a pressure cooker. Country boglands crack open, revealing secrets long buried. Bríd’s coming home to convalesce. Ciara’s headed west too, investigating a potential archaeological site. But as they arrive in the village, they find peace elusive. How will Bríd cope in her old haunts? How will Ciara confront a past she thought forgotten? An evocative monolgue play about memory, secrets and sacrifice.
